  1. couple notes from my walkabout in the rain.

    – The proposed route looks free and clear until you reach the southern R.R. tracks. THe PGE property has no elevation to consider a bridge over the tracks. Path of least resistence has the bike path moving along the south side of the tracks along the Park Cleone park fence, for about 1200′. At that point there is a gully where the Cleone stream passes under the R.R. Possible location for tunnel. At about 1500′ there is a natural rise on the north side of the tracks that would make a nice base for the bridge. dropping the bridge in the open area on the north side of I-84.

    – I was taken back by the sheer size of the Rail road elevation on the Northern R.R. line. 50-60′ ?
    – Attached is a pic of the Trussel spanning Fairview creek. Although not a great pic. there is sufficient room through the left side of the trussel for a bike path. eliminating the need to tunnel under the R.R..
    – there is plenty of space to the north side of the R.R. to place a bike path. some consideration will have to be made to the residents along the path.
